You are here: Point Cloud > PointCloudExtractor


Serializes the geometry of the feature into the Blob Attribute based on the selected writer format.


Usage Notes

  • The PointCloudReplacer may be used to do the reverse operation and convert the encoded blob back to the original data.
  • Alternatively if the point cloud is not required as a geometry on the feature for future processing, the AttributeFileWriter transformer can be used to dump the Blob Attribute directly to a file.
  • To carry out a similar operation on vector data, please use the GeometryExtractor transformer. For raster data, please use the RasterExtractor.
